Monihan Monihan (aka Maximon Monihan) was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, USA.
As a teenager he was sponsored by the legendary H-Street skateboard team.
He was featured in, and worked on, numerous landmark skate films, most notably “Shackle Me Not” and “Hokus Pokus”.
During this time Monihan earned a degree in Philosophy from University of California, Santa Cruz while also traveling throughout Europe, Asia, Central America and Africa as a professional skateboarder.
When not skateboarding, he works as a roaming research assistant for his renowned academic mentors, Professors Angela Davis, Akasha Hull, Roberto Crespi, and Herman Gray.
As his skateboard career came to a close, Monihan relocated to Brooklyn, New York to make films.
He met his wife, Sheena Matheiken, in 2009 and they have since worked as filmmaking partners.
In 2014, their production company Bricolagista! completed their first feature film, “La Voz De Los Silenciados”, which is also Monihan’s directorial debut.
“La Voz” has played at over 30 international film festivals and has won numerous awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Sound and Critics Jury Prize.
“Sea to Shining Sea” is the Monihan’s second feature film.
